Patient Comments (47)

I selected Dr. Dixit to evaluate a problem with my back based upon my experience with another doctor in the Sports Med group. It was my experience that wait times were well within my comfort zone and both he and his staff were professional and courteous. Dr. Dixit performed a lumbar laminectomy on...more

As a first time patient it is my obligation to perform a thorough clinical assessment and to make recommendations. Both your MRI and physical exam suggested spinal cord compression in two different areas of your spine. A care plan was drafted to address both issues but you decided to go a different route, which is your right as a patient. However, nothing was communicated to us that was not satisfactory for you. I hope you are doing better, even if we could not be the ones to help you get there.

I have Chiari 1.5. Dixit's decompression on me was not only incomplete, but his version of follow up care to address my many worsening symptoms (including symptoms he told me would be gone that was not) was ignoring me, joking and pushing me off on his nurse. He ignored the fact the brainstem was...more
